SUPREME COURT UPHOLDS OBAMACARE;
CLEVELAND TEA PARTY PATRIOTS RALLY TO REPEAL
In a 5-4 decision today the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare) as constitutional. Chief Justice Roberts wrote the majority opinion, which upholds the individual mandate as a constitutional tax.
While Ohio citizens had gained protection from the federal healthcare mandate when the Ohio Healthcare Freedom bill was approved by voters last year, because of this ruling Ohio citizens and businesses are no longer protected and will continue to be adversely impacted by runaway spending in healthcare programs and policies already put in place by this administration.
While the Cleveland Tea Party Patriots could not disagree more with this ruling, as we respect the Rule of Law -- we will respect their ruling. But patriots can be assured the ruling does not bring the matter to a close.
Even though the SCOTUS ruling found Obamacare to be Constitutional, the ruling does not mean that Obamacare is good or fiscally sound legislation.
As we have since our first days in opposition to a government-run healthcare that will take away our freedom, strip us of our liberties, and further depress our already strained economy -- we remain steadfast and resolute in our calls for repealing Obamacare in its entirety and to defund any programs already in place.
And thanks to Mr. Instapundit for announcing today’s rally in downtown Cleveland!
